Nantucket Atheneum Dance Festival: Author Talk, 'The Painted Girls'

Monday, Jul 22, 2013 5:00p to 6:30p
Nantucket Atheneum Nantucket, MA

Set in Paris in 1878, The Painted Girls centers on two sisters whose lives are upended with their father’s sudden death. In order to survive, one is dispatched to the Paris Opéra, where she will be trained to enter the famous ballet. Her older sister, Antoinette, finds work as an extra in a stage adaptation of Émile Zola’s masterpiece L’Assommoir. During a time of profound artistic, cultural, and societal change, each will come to realize that her salvation, if not survival, lies with the other.
